Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Not as productive

this weekend as I anticipated. I went at it on Saturday, but not as hard as I would have liked. So, I think I’ve reached about 3 pages for the week.

Life Is Like A Bowl Of Jell-O

sometimes you have to put it in the fridge and let it chill ….

(okay, I am totally rationalizing losing all sense of productivity today and project that on others, but what the heck, perhaps those Jello people are on to something !)

I thought

you were going to go into a Forrest Gump rational, but the Jell-O idea sounds reasonable. :)

no raisins

whatever you do, if you make lemon jell-o, do not use suspend raisins in it – they wind up looking like bugs

(not that I ever did that for a church pot luck and included someone else’s name on it!)

Now that's just

downright ornery. :)

My problem

is that I don’t want it to chill too long. I don’t want freezer burn.
